The Bravest 烈火英雄 (2019) is a film based on a real story in Dalian

THIS FILM IS A SHOWING FILM NOW IN CINEMA, but it is in Chinese language — but still, it is worth watching.

If you are in Dalian long enough, you remember it in 2010: Pipeline Explosion. 

The 1,500 tonnes of oil spilled from the pipes created an 180 km2 (69 sq mi) slick in the Yellow Sea that grew to 430 km2 (170 sq mi) within a week.[3][4][5] By July 21, the spill had spread to 946 km2 (365 sq mi), and stretched as far as 90 km (56 mi) along the coast.[6]

The film is about the firefighters.

Firefighters walk near flames towering from a pipeline explosion at a Chinese port in Dalian, in northern China's Liaoning province on Saturday, July 17, 2010. ... causing a massive fire that burned for 15 hours before being put out. Officials said no one was killed.

HALO PARK Donggang Dalian

I have not been there yet, so it is just a piece of 'information'.
